    Broke linkage bolt on old Uprising - replacement?

    I broke the linkage bolt on my uprising. It looks normal for the most part, but instead of being fully rounded, it's semi squared off.

    I'm not seeing this anywhere on evil site, but still waiting to hear back from them. Anyone know where I can find one?

    Can you put a micrometer on the threaded part of the bolt and do you have a thread gauge to measure the thread pitch?

    My guess is you could replicate the bolt but you may need a washer under the head with two flats filed on opposing sides, like the bolt head.

    If you donít have the tools or info Iím asking for take the two parts to a good hardware store and see if they can help
    you.

    My guess is Evil does not have any of this hardware. Have you tried calling them and asking if they do?
